My Favorite Top 10 Sport Quotes

I’ve been watching a lot of football lately. Yesterday, the Seahawks smacked the Cardinals 35-6 in Arizona! I’m excited to see what the playoffs have to offer for the NFL. Also, my Lakers have been struggling to find their place in the Western Conference. Kobe has had a few last minute missed opportunities, but I’m hopeful that he’ll be able to turn it around and lead the Lakers to the playoffs.

I have compiled a list of my top 10 favorite sport quotes that I’ve stumbled across this December. Enjoy :)
